Appeal: Review of Current Law and Law Reform is a student-led journal that publishes
exclusively student work. This year, we continue to feature a vast array of fascinating
topics from students across Canada. We introduce authors from the University of
Victoria, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, Dalhousie University,
Queen's University, University of Toronto, and McGill University.

We begin with topics especially important to the west coast community, beginning with
an Aboriginal law paper that distils the topic of restorative justice practices for Aboriginal
offenders. We feature environmental papers that address unique issues, including the
protection of Canada's glaciers from climate change and the harnessing of tidal energy for
a sustainable future. Our Charter articles involve the right against unlawful searches and
seizures of computers, freedom of thought and expression in the context of combatting
home-grown terrorism, Parliament's possible use of the notwithstanding clause to
override the newly recognized right to strike, and the approach to administrative law
decisions that invoke these Charter rights. Finally, we present an ethics article on the
dilemmas lawyers face in balancing their need to maintain civility in the courtroom
while remaining a zealous advocate.

Publishing Appeal is a team-effort and we thank the Faculty of Law at the University of
Victoria. This volume would not be possible without the constant and continued support
of the many faculty members who share their insights and experience with our Editorial
Board. In particular, we would like to extend our appreciation to Ted McDorman for his
steadfast support of Appeal. We also thank our student volunteers, many of whom are
first-year students eager to contribute to the law school community.

Furthermore, we would like to extend our sincerest thanks to our external reviewers
who donated time out of their busy schedules in support of Appeal. Their expertise and
professional opinions allow our authors and editors to create articulate, well-balanced,
and deeply analyzed articles that reflect timely legal issues and the future of law reform
in Canada. Appealwould not be possible without their contributions.

We also thank our patrons and sponsors, whose financial support makes Appeal possible.
Their ongoing support ensures that Appeal continues to be a home, both online and in
print, for exceptional student work.

Finally, we thank our exceptional authors for their hard work in the editing process (even
in the course of world travel) to improve and enhance their papers, and our outstanding
Editorial Board for their dedication in producing this volume. It has been our privilege
to serve as this year's Editors-in-Chief.

This journal is the product of nearly fifty passionate contributors, students, and external
reviewers; it is our joy and pride that we now present Volume 21 of Appeal to you,
the reader.
